Annual SHOT Report 2019 webinar

The SHOT team are excited to announce our second topic specific webinar, covering the Transfusion-Transmitted Infections (TTI) chapter of the Annual SHOT Report 2019.

1- Mohs Introductory Webinar

Following on from the taster session we will now look more closely at the benefits of Mohs micrographic surgery to include improved preservation of uninvolved skin, better cosmetic outcomes and how it can be used on problematic infiltrative invasive tumour types. In addition we will consider the technical requirements in detail along with an understanding of the artefacts that can be created during the procedures and how they can also be resolved. Emphasis will be given to developing a comprehensive understanding of the skills required for the laboratory scientist to deliver good quality stained tissue sections.
